HAPPENINGS - September 10 - 23


History of the American Cancer Society: At the time the American Society for the Control of Cancer was founded on May 23, 1913 it was not considered appropriate to mention the word "cancer" in public. (Current name of American Cancer Society was adopted in 1944.) Information concerning this illness was cloaked in a climate of fear and denial. Over 75,000 people died each year of cancer in just the US. The top item on the founders' agenda was to raise awareness of cancer before any other progress could be made in funding research. A frenetic writing campaign was undertaken to educate doctors, nurses, patients and family members about cancer. Articles were written for popular magazines and professional journals. Campaign Notes, a monthly bulletin with cancer Info, was published by the Society and recruiting of doctors from all over the US were recruited to help educate the public about cancer. (cont'd)
